The company was growing quickly, we needed better tools, we made fast decisions, and before you knew it, we had tried three different accounting platforms in two years. We learned the hard way. Let me walk you through what happened, so that you don't have to.
I work as a staff accountant at a software company with 20-50 employees, which has started to exit the startup stage. Two years ago, Management decided to make the switch from QuickBooks Desktop to NetSuite. This year, the company is switching from NetSuite back to QuickBooks (Online). Yes, after only two years and a whole lot of man and woman hours, we are going back.
So, given the company is still moving forward and growing, why are we are moving back to the simple accounting platform that we started with when there were just a handful of employees? Let me explain and hopefully it will help others decide when it is really the right time to switch.
